Parent Communication Folders

Parent communication folders are being sent home each night. They will be a daily communication tool between you and your child's teachers. The folders must be signed each evening and return with the student every day to school. We will communicate both positive and negative choices made by the student, and this record will help to determine the behavior grades on each six weeks report card. The calendar in there also lists upcoming events during this six weeks. Work that needs to be completed, as well as graded work will be sent home using this folder. Thank you in advance for helping to establish a routine with your child where they can talk to you daily about their learning. It is so important for kids to know that their parents value their education and are willing to take an active part in it. Signing the folders is one small way to show your child that you will take the time out of your day to ensure that they are being successful at school. If it is important to you, it will become important to them.

Changes in Dismissal

PLEASE email the front office and your child's homeroom teacher should you have a change in how your child will go home. Ride changes must be made in writing, either in a note sent with the student, or in an email. Requests must be made prior to 2:00pm in order to ensure that it is properly communicated. Your child's safety is of our utmost concern.
